Eleven years ago a baby girl was abandoned in a paper box at a train station in the Hunan Province in China clothed in nothing more than a light blue jacket. This innocent baby girl was found in the early hours of the next morning by a kind stranger and taken to an orphanage in China where she lived the first year of her life. Around the age of one, this little girl was adopted by a couple from Texas, given the name of McKenzie Grace Walker, and raised in the United States.
From that moment, little McKenzie Walker began to grow up and live as any normal American child, with one exception; early on her parents noticed Kenzie had a special fondness for anything musical. She would sing along with clock chimes, memorize lyrics to songs she heard and sing complete songs when she was barely able to talk.
Fast forward through the last 11 years on Kenzie’s unusual life journey and not only has she performed the National Anthem for the Major League Baseball team the Houston Astros but has landed a record deal after being discovered by veteran producer and 2015 GRAMMY Nominee, Mark Carman.
At such a young age, Kenzie is already set to share her musical talent with the world through a brand new, debut recording being released in March 2015 through Mansion Entertainment and distributed by Sony/RED and the family is set to share their incredible journey of how this real-life fairy tale has unfolded with requests already coming in for network television appearances. Kenzie’s management, MCM World Media, is currently planning a tour targeting Southeast Asia later in 2015.
